Miller adds seats for Taylor Swift concert
Dec. 22, 2007
KALAMAZOO--Best New Artist Grammy nominee and country music's youngest rising star, 17-year-old Taylor Swift, comes to Western Michigan University for one performance at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, in Miller Auditorium.
Concert tickets ranging from $34.25 to $40.75 went on sale to the general public Dec. 17. Within four days, only a few hundred seats remained from the initial offering. Ticket sales remain brisk, and Miller has opened its balcony for the concert, making an additional 500 seats available.
Miller Auditorium's Ticket Office will be open on reduced hours during WMU's holiday closure, which runs through Jan. 3. Tickets for Taylor Swift and other upcoming performances at Miller, including the popular Broadway musical "Evita," may be ordered by calling (269) 387-2300 or toll free (800) 228-9858, online at millerauditorium.com, or in person at the ticket office.
Dubbed "Country's Teen Queen" by People magazine, Swift is the youngest person ever to write and sing a No. 1 country single entirely on her own. She is also the first female artist in country music history to write or co-write every song on a double platinum-selling debut album.
At the 41st annual Country Music Association Awards, held in November at the Sommet Center in Nashville, Tenn., Swift received the Horizon Award, one of the highest honors for today's country music stars. The Nashville Songwriters Association International also honored her as the Songwriter/Artist of the Year, making her the youngest musician to win the award.
